Sorry wasn't obvious to me, but then this is me we're talking about

I agree regarding buying from places like this being a better option, would be my first choice too. However, sometimes great deals can be found on ebay. I've bought a very nice Macro lens and flash from there. Have to be extremely cautious though.

They do - I've asked them about it, but feel like I can get a better condition lens from a forumite for the same cash to be honest.

A whisker late, not your fault. I've just managed to pick the 20mm Panny up via AVF a few minutes ago...looks like I will need to update the thread.

Thanks to all who assisted - I appreciate your help.

Steve,

I may well be interested in your 17mm lens - I am however a new member and can't pm you. Do you have any details.

thanks!

Re: Panasonic f/1.7 20mm or Olympus f/1.8 17mm

Hi There.

I have just bought a second hand Panasonic 20mm from a member of this group. I have tested it just once and it works fine. It's in a box, has instructions but no pouch. I find that the advantages of size & weight do not outweigh the range of my 12-35mm lens, Am happy to sell it for what I paid - that is 160.

Let me know if you are still in the market.
